Comparison of Household Refrigerator Efficiency Standards in the USA with those Proposed for Australia and Europe


This paper compares and contrasts the current and proposed MEPS levels for the USA, Australia and Europe. It provides a quantitative estimate of the relative stringency of the proposed Australian refrigerator MEPS levels (for 1999) in comparison with those proposed for Europe (for 1999) and the 1993 US levels that were in force.
